The official website for the second season of the Haganai (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai) school comedy anime, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT, announced the opening and ending theme songs for the show on Friday. "Rinjinbu," a group made of voice actresses Marina Inoue, Kanae Itō, Nozomi Yamamoto, Misato Fukuen, Kana Hanazawa, and Yuka Iguchi, will sing both the opening theme "Be My Friend," and the ending theme song "Bokura no Tsubasa" (Our Wings).
The single containing both songs will go on sale on sale on February 6 for 1,260 yen (about US$16). The group previously sang the opening theme song for the first season.
For the second season, the first season's assistant director Toru Kitahata (Love, Election & Chocolate) is taking over the proverbial director's chair from Hisashi Saito (Bamboo Blade, Heaven's Lost Property). Unlike in the first season, original novelist Yomi Hirasaka will be in charge of the series scripts alongside the first season's Tatsuhiko Urahata. Kurasumi Sunayama (Monster, Romeo X Juliet) is also joining the writing staff. Toshihiro Kohama (SaiKano, Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!, Spice and Wolf) replaces Yuka Hirama as the art director.
The main voice cast from the first season will reprise their roles for the second season. The new season will premiere next January on the TBS and BS-TBS television channels.
